    Product description is inconsistent "Precision made. Beautifully crafted."

    • Written by from Chicago

    The product description states that the case is Precision made. This is incorrect as the Apple issued Lightning to 30 pin adapter will not work with this case. I believe Apple missed this. It would have been helpful to know before purchasing this case.

    It feels utterly fantastic!

    • Written by from Langley

    Confession - I own A LOT of cases. And they all cost quite a bit less than this one. But without a doubt, my iPhone has never felt better in my hands. The leather is simply superb. It feels exactly like the gorgeous steering wheel on my new BMW. And the outer edges of the case don't wrap around the front of the iPhone to obscure the delightful view. I'll admit that I was swayed by the comments about colours looking dirty and ended up with the black. But honestly, this is so head-and-shoulders above anything else in my collection that I'm going to buy a couple of other colours and switch around. My advice - do not be put off by the price. Buy it and try it for a week or two. I can't imagine you won't LOVE it but just in case, you've always got Apple's return policy to back you up.

    Best iPhone Case I've Used

    • Written by from Memphis

    This really is the best iPhone case I've used since I bought an iPhone 4 and I've tried quite a few cases. The fit and finish of it is without match and the feel in hand is very nice and makes it slightly grippier and more substantial than the iPhone itself. It also doesn't have any tacky logos and just shows a very subtle apple indentation where it normally is on the iPhone itself. Overall it looks very clean and sleek. I've finally found an iPhone case I don't want to take off!

    Slimmest Case, Highest Quality

    • Written by from Wellington

    I was looking for the most minimalist case I could find and this is definitely it. It is almost (almost) like not even having a case on your phone.

    The other reviewers are all right that the leather feels excellent and the fit is as snug and as good as it gets. It is difficult to take the case on and off, but this is the kind of case you leave on all the time.

    This case is for you if you want:
    - The most minimalist case you can get
    - A bumper-like lip around the front so when you set it screen-side down the screen does not touch the table surface
    - A quality feel
    - Protection from scratches or scuffs

    This case is NOT for you if you want:
    - A case you can easily remove all the time
    - A case that offers reasonable drop protection (remember that no case actually offers drop protection, but some out there claim to be designed for a little impact)

    I bought it in black because I was worried the lighter colors would show dirt over time (like all leather does).

    Best of the Apple leather cases.

    • Written by from Belleair

    I have ordered the black, brown, blue and yellow leather iPhone cases from Apple. Without a doubt, black is the best color due to its ability to hide wear and soiling. I have had the black case on my iPhone 5s for a little over two weeks, and it still looks like new (both the phone and the case). The colored cases look horrible after only a few days of handling. I think someone online said they felt like they needed a case for their red leather case, and I agree. Apple didn't think through the colors very well (yellow isn't yellow, and the blue is muddy compared to online photos). The aniline leather does wear, but the colored cases look worn and dirty after only a couple of days – defeating the purpose of a colored case.

    Great Case Lacking Docking Ability

    • Written by from Washington

    I love the case, it's essentially form fitting and looks great, that's why I bought it. It should be a 5 star case and I would give it that rating but it does not event connect with Apple's own dock! I think it's crazy that some cheaper cases fit without a problem and the case designed by Apple and adorning it's very own logo does not. I use a dock to charge at night / to listen to music and I'm very disappointed that I have to take the this case off two do so. I still have a week left to return it, because knowing my luck Apple will release a more dock friendly case in a few months....

    Great Fit--but looks awful!

    • Written by from groveland

    I am a compulsive case shopper so I have had many cases for my iphone 5. I was so excited to purchase this product because I figured it would fit much better due to the fact Apple produced it. That, at least I was right about. I love the way it fits!

    The problem is how well the leather looks after some use. I purchased the red case and within days it looked old and grungy. All the oils from your hands leave black marks on the edges and sides and all over the back where you would typically hold the phone.

    I know its supposed to look better with age, but I am guessing it will just look like I should buy a new case! Maybe the black one holds up better.

    I took mine to Austin City Limits (ACL), and the case emerged unscathed. It's great.

    Very Dissappointed!

    • Written by from Amagansett

    The quality of the case is ok but not worth $39. The biggest problem is that you cannot use an Apple adapter to charge the phone when this case is on the phone! The adapter does not fit in far enough to connect and charge the phone without taking the case off--each time you want to charge. Very poor design by Apple who created the adapter AND this case which don't work together.

    Best iPhone Case

    • Written by from Portland

    When I got my iPhone 5, I bought a very slick looking case with a transparent backing that sadly, didn't stay transparent for long and also caused tiny specks of dirt to be ground into the soft aluminum case of the phone, creating giant gouges. When I saw these online I decided to pick this up and the lady at the Apple Store let me check it out before i bought it. I could not be happier. It holds the phone snugly with a great texture and most importantly, a soft inner lining to prevent dirt from chipping the aluminum finish.

    Perfect Case!!!

    • Written by from Fullerton

    Just buy it. You won't regret it. Workmanship, looks, fit and finish all Apple! It fits great and feels terrific. Could not have designed a better compliment to the 5s. I love this case! PS-not sure what some of the other reviewers were talking about -- the 30-pin/Lightening adapter is fully compatible.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Mapleton

    I purchased this iPhone 5s Case with my iPhone 5s. I love the look of the iPhone 5s, but I didn't want to risk dropping it and scratching the beautiful phone. I got the black leather version and it is beautiful on the phone and feels great in hand. My sister got the blue version and she loves it and it looks great as well. It is easy to put on and it doesn't make the phone "fat" at all. I would definitely recommend.

    The Perfect Case for iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Ridgewood

    This is the best case I've ever used on an iPhone!. I purchased the RED and I couldn't be happier. Smoothe and beautifully made. Perfect fit on the device and it feels wonderful in my hand.
    I'll be buying more in other colors once I see how well it ages.

    Looks nice but stains very easily

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I got the beige one. I stained it within the first 3 hours of having my new iphone and I am not a generally messy person. The leather takes up stains very quickly and they are impossible to get out.

    In black, it might work better because it hides staines, but I would not get a light color.

    Im returning it and getting a black leather case that holds a credit card at the same time.

    Highly recommended

    • Written by from BUFFALO

    I was really not sure wanting to spend 40 on a case but I gave it a shot with anti glare screen protector I ended up spending 60 dollars
    As far as the case is very excellent I've tried plenty of cases this by far is worth the money the way it fits feels looks .., I got the black one It's looks like they spend enough time to figure out the right materials and the design of it around the phone .. Very unique product again I would highly recommend this . Don't waste money on cases that u would through out for 10 or 20 or even 30 . Get this

    Great feel, disappointing design.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Very light and feels great. Fits the phone well. Pretty slim fit - about the same thickness as a naked 4S. But uncharacteristically, they missed the details:

    - Difficult to access mute switch. I need to reach in with the tip of my finger or I can't catch the edge. Annoying, but tolerable.
    - Sleep and volume buttons are difficult to press. There aren't cutouts for these buttons, just slightly embossed leather. The volume button response is duller, but tolerable. The sleep button, however, is a chore to activate. This is a deal breaker. Every time I put the phone down, it leaves me frustrated. They've been at this too long to not get this right.
    - Headphone jack cutout is too small. Good luck getting non-Apple headphones plugged in through the tiny opening they've afforded for the headphone jack. Personally, this is a total dealbreaker.

    They almost hit it out of the park. Instead, it's a swing and a miss.

    Clean and Precise

    • Written by from Roseville

    I've tried any number of cases, from bulky "military" type cases to super thin plastic shells, and among all of them, this case has the most precise fit and finish. The cut outs are perfectly aligned over the openings, and the "lay on table" edge is just high enough to keep the screen safe while not getting in the way of iOS 7 edge gestures.

    I opted for the black finish, and after two weeks of daily use the finish is holding up well. The subtly textured surface creates just enough friction to keep the phone in place while typing on a table top, and the feel in hand is comfortable and secure.

    Overall I'd rate this as one of the best cases available for the iPhone 5 or 5s. It doesn't offer the extreme drop protection of some cases, but for the average person using their phone in a business environment, this is a very nice solution.
